LITERARY LOG ROLLING.
How Some Famous Authors Sought to
The examples- cited by Francis Grib
ble in his article on "The Comedy of
Literary Log Rolling" in the Strand
agazine arouse some suspicion as to
their absolute authenticity, but are
amusing enough whether true or not
Sainte-Beuve increased the circulation
of his books by insisting upon fighting
a duel in the rain with an umbrella
over his head. Gerard de Nerval used
to be seen in the streets of Paris lead
ing a lobster by a string. Mme. KM
dener, the author of "Valerie" and the
friend of Alexander I. of Russia, made
the fortune of her novel by calling at
all the Paris shops and asking for va
rious articles of dress "a la Valerie."
Of Victor Hugo and of Alexandre Du
mas the elder the following stories are
Nor was the great poet ashamed to
roll his log even at a funeral. He seized
the opportunity at the obsequies of
one of his own sons. It happened that
on the way to the cemetery the pro
cession passed a traveling menagerie,
and the lions, for whatever reason,
stopped roaring just as Victor Hugo
was in front of their cage. His com
panion, a minor poet named Pelleport,
drew his attention to the fact. "Mas
ter," he whispered, "the lions recognize
you and hush their voices. The king
of beasts is silent in the presence of the
king of men." Victor Hugo bowed and
turned the matter over in his mind.
Then, after meditation, he said: "Pelle
port, that was a happy thought of
yours. Couldn't you write something
about 1t?" And Pelleport wrote a son
net about it, and the fame of the mas
ter -stood on a higher pinnacle than
And finally there was the case of Du
mas, of whom it may almost be said
that his whole life was an advertise
ment. Some one once said of him that
his vanity was such that he was capa
ble of getting up behind his own car
riage in order to demonstrate that he
had a negro footman in his service.
He certainly dId many things almost
as absurd as that in his restless pur
suit of reclame. One of his delights
was to clothe his noble porportions in
a uniform and to embellish the uni
form with decorations to which he was
not entitled. He even went so far as
himself to design the uniform in which
he fought-or, rather, did not fight, for
he arrived after the fighting was all
over-in Garibaldi's army, and he
achieved a tremendous advertisement
by conducting a well known actress to
a court ball to which she had not been
invited. He got another advertise
ment by allowing himself to be sued
for nondelivery of a feuilleton. He
was -utterly in the wrong. and lhe lost
his case, but he kept the court in roars
of laughter while he explained his lit
erary methods and the nature of the
distractions which had interfered with
the fulfillment of his contract. But
the best of all his advertisement was
attained when the announcement ap
peared that 3M. Alexandre Dumas
wouhl write the last chapter of a forth
coming romance sitting in a shop win
dow. for all the world to see how It
was done. One can understand that
that sort of advei-tisement would suit
the authors who are also interested in
the sale of hair restorers. They al
most owe It to the publice to exhibit
themselves in this way, killing two
birds with a single stone. But. tor the
author of "3Monte Cristo" to do it was
surely the ne plus ultra of the comedy
of log rolling. _____

They Originated In a Scheme Devised
by Lord Stanhope.
The general public has no idea of
the meabing of "sinking fund." The
I term had Its origin in a scheme de
vised by Lord Stanhope In 1716 where
by certain taxes on the South Sea
(Bubble) and general funds were made
perpetual, and It was enacted that the
surplus should be annually Invested
and applied to the discharge of the na
tional debt By means of it between
the years 1716 and 1783 the sum of -
$52,240,000 of the debt was actually
discharged. So rich became the sink
Ing fund that it excited the cupidity
of parliament and the grafters laid
violent hands on It, diverting It to
other purposes, so that in the succeed
ing'twenty-five years only $42,500,000
more had been paid off.
The fund got Into a condition ~so
wretched that It did little In time of
peace and nothing In time of war to
discharge the national debt Dr. Price
persuaded William Pitt to adopt his
plan-of investing $5,000,000 every year
at compound Interest until with the ac
cumulations the sum amounted to $20,
000,000, when It was to be Invested at'
simple interest only, - leaving. the
amount of Interest annually redeemed
at the disposal of parliament Dr.
Price said: "Let a state be supposed
to run In debt $10,000,000 a year, for
which It pays Interest at 4 per cent
In seventy years a debt of $700,000,
000 would be Incurred. But an appro
priation of $2,000,000 a year employed
as a sinking fund at compound Inter
est would at the end of this time leave
the nation beforehand $30,000,000"
